Since 2018, the 3A Institute and then the School of Cybernetics have collaborated with Microsoft to bring executives in a range of sectors masterclasses under the Microsoft AI Business School.

The program is the first externally available skills experience arising from the groundbreaking and experimental Master of Applied Cybernetics, which Microsoft has supported since its inception.

Participants of this special program of masterclasses access insights developed from original research by the School of Cybernetics that considers ways of thinking about the role of humans, and environment, in building and using technologies. The program includes modules on AI and cybernetics.

Together with Microsoft, we design this program for people who work with new and emerging technology capabilities. We help open up the conversation so that people can bring diverse skills to building or implementing technology, avoid unintended consequences and be able to bring their whole self to the technology conversation. We help participants to engage critically with emerging technologies, and challenge participants to think beyond a single technology and use case, to consider a technology as part of a larger system that includes people and the environment.
